American Old Time Song Lyrics: 15 Lovely Nell
Theater, Music-Hall, Nostalgic, Irish & Historic Old Songs, Volume 15
As sang by Tony Hart.
I love my love in the morning,
For she's fair as Aurora's self;
And as winsome as the flowers in May,
Or a dancing, sprightly elf.
I love her when the noon time comes,
Or shadows of evening fall;
She's fairer than the flowers that bloom,
And lovelier than them all.
With dark brown hair and dreaming eyes,
And steps so light and free,
There's no girl could compare with Nell,
And she's all the world to me.
I love my love in the evening,
For her cheeks like roses bloom,
Or the crimson hue of the setting sun
Which glows so grand in June.
She's sweeter than the lilies fair,
As gentle as the dew;
And her eyes with blue bells can compare,
Or a night of azure hue.-Chorus.
